What is Clearing?
Clearing is a service you’ll want to use if you don’t yet have a confirmed place at university and would like to start study in September 2020.
Am I eligible for Clearing?
You can apply for an undergraduate course through Clearing if:
- you didn’t receive your expected grades and your offers have not been confirmed
- you haven’t applied for university but would like to start in September 2020
- you would like to apply for a different course or university than you have previously chosen on your UCAS application
I haven’t applied for university yet, is it too late?
It’s not too late to apply. Please contact us +44 (0) 1452 702 333 to speak to our admissions team. They'll guide you through the process of applying during Clearing 2020.
I’ve already applied through UCAS but I’ve changed my mind. Can I change my course or university?
Of course. If you’ve already applied to university and had your place confirmed but would like to change your course or university, you can. Here’s what you’ll need to do:
- Make sure there’s space on the course you’d like to apply for and that the university are willing to accept you.
- Get yourself released from the place you already have at university. You cannot go back to your initial selection once you have been released from a place at a university, so it’s important you are sure about your decision.
- If you’ve applied for any loans you’ll need to let the Student Loans Company know that you’ve changed your institute.

For us it’s all about matching the right student to the right course. Please give us a ring on +44 (0) 1452 702 333 and together we’ll figure out which course is best for you.

We consider all of our Clearing applications on an individual basis. If the course you are interested in is available to apply for through Clearing then give us a call on +44 (0) 1452 702 333
I’ve received a verbal offer through Clearing. What happens next and do I need to apply through UCAS?
Once you’ve been given a verbal offer to study with us you’ll receive an email from the team advising you on the next steps in the application process.
How do I know that a degree at Hartpury is right for me?
Doing your own research and seeking a range of advice is the best way to ensure you leave university with a degree to be proud of. We’re here to help you to find the right Hartpury course - if you’ve not got the results you expected, lots of our courses have foundation years, which offer an alternative route onto a degree.
If I have applied through Clearing can I still apply for accommodation at Hartpury?
We offer guaranteed on or off-site Hartpury managed accommodation for your first year if you apply to us through Clearing.
I have a conditional offer from Hartpury, do I need to send you my results when I receive them?
If you have accepted a conditional offer and are waiting for A Level, BTEC or City and Guilde, WJEC or Irish Leaving diploma results we normally receive your results from the awarding bodies through UCAS. Sometimes we will receive these before they are published, sometimes afterwards.
If we don’t expect to receive your results through UCAS we will ask you to send a copy of your results when you receive them.
What happens when you get my results?
If you achieve the grades required by your conditional offer then we will have your place confirmed and we will email you a PDF of an acceptance letter. You will also see your the status of your application on UCAS change.
If you have not quite met the required grades, our Admissions Officers will review your application and your place may be confirmed if there are places still available on their course and we believe that you have shown sufficient academic potential to achieve on the course.
How will you assess academic potential?
We will look at the following to assess your academic potential:
- Have you met the minimum GCSE entry criteria for the course.
- What qualifications have you achieved.
- We will read your personal statement looking particularly to assess motivation and suitability for the chosen course of study. In particular we will look for evidence to show :
- evidence of knowledge of, interest in and commitment to the subject;
- non-academic achievement or experience in areas that align to the subject;
- work experience and/or positions of responsibility in areas aligned to the subject;
- interests, hobbies and pastimes.
- The reference or a written recommendation from a teacher, adviser, or professional who knows you academically or professionally to look for evidence of an overall assessment of the applicant, in particular your suitability for the course of study
- Contextual information that will help assess your academic potential
- Any extenuating circumstances
If you feel there is additional information that you would like us to take into account then you can send this to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may also contact you to discuss you application.
If I don’t get accepted on my course will you offer me an alternative?
If we are concerned about confirming your place we will try to contact you to discuss this with you. When we are unable to confirm a place on the original course we will seek to offer a place on an alternative course if places are still available.
